Making Sense of Randomness: Implicit Encoding as a Basis for Judgment.
Falk, Ruma; Konold, Clifford
Psychological Review, v104 n2 p301-18 Apr 1997
Results of three studies, involving 606 high school and college students, show that the perceived randomness of a sequence is better predicted by its encoding difficulty than its objective randomness. Results imply that judging the extent of randomness of a sequence is based on the attempt to encode it. (SLD)
